Rescue Me ID: 16-07-26-00682Warsy (Star Wars) (male)

American Staffordshire Terrier Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    This is really difficult, but I need to ask for help with rehoming one of our dogs, Warsy (pictured). He has been increasingly aggressive toward our other (smaller) dog, Maggie, and we need to move him to a home where he can have: - more space - be a solo dog - receive continual training for his social behaviour. He's desexed. Great with kids. Only aggressive toward other dogs. He is an almost 1 year old Amstaff X American&Aussie Bulldog, who is extremely intelligent and is very very lovely and sweet until his dominance kicks in, which is an issue we haven't got the capacity to deal with based on our priority being Maggie's safety. ... (Read More)We don't need a trainer. Our only option is to find a new home for him, or else he will end up in the pound (and we really don't want that). If you have the capacity to take him, or know someone who does, please let me know ASAP. (Less)

Boxer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Lou is a friendly puppy only 10mths old. He is showing signs of dominance and some aggression towards his brother and we have been advised to remove him as he is not coping with other dogs. He is good with our young children however we would not like to see any child hurt by him and recommend either single or couple with no children and a large run for him. He is a very smart pup and responding well to training but unfortunately his nature is dominant which is causing aggression between the dogs. I need to have a home or place for him by tomorrow 4pm or vet has recommended we euthanize him, he really is a lovely dog just not with other ... (Read More)animals. (Less)

    VIC - Zeus (m/2y) Not available for interstate adoption. Zeus. 18mo (recently) desexed purebred Male Boxer. Zeus is the ultimate goof ball! He loves to play, run and jump. He's wonderful with kids, but not so great with other dogs and animals. His perfect home would be with a family who can spoil him and take him for long walks. He has been known to jump, so a secure yard is a must, and due to his short coat, he needs to be inside in during cold weather. Do you think you can provide the perfect home for this beautiful boy?

Boxer    Age: Young Adult

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    VIC - Bronx (m/5y) Large Male Boxer Located in Victoria Not available for interstate adoption Bronx is a sedate, and loving boy. He loves nothing more than a good scratch and somewhere warm to sleep near his family. He shows a little too much interest in livestock than is healthy, so is more suited to a residential property. Surrendered to us as a purebred Boxer, we do question this, however he is very much the 'American Style' with a longer nose, taller in stature and a heavier build. He walks well on lead, however can be strong at times, especially if he's really excited about going somewhere.. He's very polite around food, knows how to ... (Read More)sit on command, as well as drop. However, being a Boxer, he gets around to doing it. He is clean inside, well behaved in the car and is all-around good guy. He can be quite dominant with other dogs, and so far has only been exposed to our rescue Boxer bitch. He was a little too much for her and did growl, but when told to behave, he was good. She was not so good, so we separated them. Before us, he lived happily with another Boxer bitch. He can jump, so will require a home with good fencing, and would be best suited as an only dog. He has not been tried with cats, but given his enthusiasm for other animals that run, he may not do so well with them. He came to us a little underweight, but is gaining nicely. He is also crate trained. To sum up, he's a fantastic big boy who needs someone to show him the ropes, take him for walks and love him. Medical Notes He has absolutely no health issues that we are aware of. (Less)

    I found this dog as a stray. He's currently in Blacktown Animal Holding Facility in Western Sydney.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Australia
    Dogs can make good pets in Australia if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Australia Fact Sheet
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. The dog was the earliest domesticated animal. Dogs are red-green colorblind. Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
